All Friday evening papers reported on the Trump administration’s plan to ease existing rules regarding exports of armed drones and conventional weapons with the goal of exporting them more actively to Japan and other allies. The article said the planned deregulation is in line with President Trump’s “America First” policy, saying that it is intended to shore up the U.S. defense industry and counter China, Russia, and Israel, whose presence is growing in the international arms market. Under the revised policy, U.S. defense contractors will reportedly be able to hold negotiations with foreign governments directly without USG involvement when marketing military drones overseas.
